Your marriage is blessed.
By God! Do you believe that? Do you speak blessing over your Marriage?
God has been blessing marriage since the beginning of time.
God gave Adam and Eve to each other. He let them leave and cleave with each other. He spoke blessing and purpose over them.

Let me leave you with a glimpse into the first ever marriage …
Here’s an imaginative account of Adam and Eve’s wedding, taken from my new book Forever Loved: Eve’s Story, Eve speaking:
My wedding was somewhat different from yours, or what you imagine yours will be! I can see your beautiful dress, your amazing flowers. You look stunning. I was stunning too (so Adam told me afterward). My flowers were exquisite, growing all around me, newly created, aflame with colour and fragrance. My dress? Well, there’s the difference. I had no dress! No clothes at all in fact. Adam was dressed likewise. Shocking, I know! My Dad’s different like that. He likes freedom. He likes simplicity.
It was a wonderful wedding. Beauty just glowed from us!
Papa gave us away to each other. His daughter. His son.
Laughter. Joy. Tears of wonder at this newness of love, just discovered today. Papa is with us. Smiling, laughing, blessing us.
“Be fruitful and multiply. Fill the earth. Rule and reign. Receive my abundance.”
Our wedding blessing!
And what a blessing! “Be fruitful and multiply.” You know what that means! There we were, in front of each other, marveling at the glory of each other’s bodies. What a wedding present! My Dad’s something else!
It has always amazed me. Our Father, having just created us, loving us so much, and yet willing to give us away to each other. He didn’t cling on to us or demand we return to him. He let us leave, and cleave with each other. And He continued to love us just as fiercely as before. But he gave us the choice to return that love.
